The Andertoons ChaCha

Ran across ChaCha again over at TechCrunch, and finally gave it a try. Here’s a transcript of my human guided search:

Status: Connecting …

Status: Looking for a guide …

Ring: …

Status: Connected to guide: joshua(79876)

joshua(79876): Welcome to ChaCha!

You: Hey there

You: I need some good business cartoons

joshua(79876): Welcome to ChaCha! Please wait a moment while I search for your results.

You: k

joshua(79876): Please be more specific as to what you’re looking for on this topic.

You: I just need some funny business cartoons for a presentation

You: Where could I purchase some?

joshua(79876): does it matter of what business the cartoons are about

You: Nope

You: Generic business

You: Sales and stuff

Then results started appearing in the right column:


I waited until four results showed up. to continue:

You: Cool, that Andertoons looks good

You: Thanks!

joshua(79876): no probuno momento por favor

joshua(79876): lno problem

joshua(79876): anything else i can help with today

You: Nope

joshua(79876): k have a nice day and thanks for choosing chacha

joshua(79876): Please RATE ME. Thanks for using ChaCha.

Status: Session ended.

I rated the guide as “GREAT” even though the results I got were under the heading “Health > Conditions and Diseases”

ChaCha is interesting, but dreadfully slow in a “I’ll just Google that real quick” world.

Anyway, kinda weird, but nice being #1.

Andertoons 2.0 – Views

ViewsAnother brand new feature is Andertoons keeping track of cartoon views.

Every time you click on a cartoon’s thumbnail and the big cartoon page comes up, that counts as viewing that cartoon. (Also, whenever you navigate to the home page, it counts that as a view for the daily cartoon.)

Each cartoon now lists the number of times it’s been viewed by visitors, and, again, the most viewed cartoons are displayed on the home page, and by topic on each of the main topic pages.

I dunno how useful this is in the end, but it’s kinda fun to see what everyone is looking at!

Anyway, enjoy!
